DisturbiaDirector: D.J. Caruso,
Salton Sea director D.J. Caruso travels from the shore to the suburbs for this suspenseful tale of a young man who suspects that his neighbor is a notorious serial killer. Kale (Shia LaBeouf) is a high school senior who has yet to come to terms with the fact that his father is gone, the victim of a fatal accident. As Kale's mother (Carrie-Anne Moss) struggles to pay the bills by picking up extra shifts at work, her son's behavior grows increasingly erratic. When an altercation at school finds Kale placed under court-ordered house arrest, the homebound student teams with newly arrived girl-next-door Ashley (Sarah Roemer) to investigate the suspicious neighbor (David Morse), whom Kale believes to be an elusive and wanted serial killer. Their attentions focused intensely on their suspect, Kale and Ashley trespass down a dangerous path while attempting to discern whether his suspicions are grounded in fact or just a combination of deep depression and suffocating cabin fever.

very cool movie i enjoyed it.
i saw this movie in theater its great keep you guesing well played must see
This i heard was something similar to another movie called rear window with a similar plot no wonder a lot of people thought of that. Anyway you have a teen under house arrest suspects neighbor of being a killer with help from best pal and the new girl. I like it and it had some jump out of your moments and good suspense. So would see it again and love Shia too.
This movie never gets boring, no matter how many times you watch it! Shia LeBeouf is a great actor. And David Morse is no slouch either!
I can't express in words how much i love this movie! It rox my sox!
DISTURBIA is a fine little thriller of a movie. Though some viewers are commenting that it is merely a takeoff on REAR WINDOW and finding it not up to that caliber - and if that bothers potential viewers then be advised, for this viewer it is more a film that addresses our progressive invasion of privacy by high tech instruments, and as such the film makes an important statement. Writers Christopher Landon and Carl Ellsworth have produced a solid script that manages to capture teenage angst and view of the world and with director D.J. Caruso the story is propelled along with a hold-your-breath pace that makes for a very entertaining and scary movie! Kale (a very fine Shia LaBeouf) had a great relationship with his father (Matt Craven), but in a hideous auto accident Kale witnesses the death of his father, an event that disturbs him so greatly even a year later that he misbehaves in school and eventually is put under house arrest wearing an alarm bracelet on his ankle. Kale's mother (Carrie-Anne Moss) tries to cope with the 'incarcerated' Kale, but tires of his aimless wasting of time and energy. Out of boredom Kale stares out his windows with binoculars, observing the neighbors, not the least of which is an attractive young Ashley (Sarah Roemer). Kale's best friend Ronnie (a very promising Aaron Yoo) is Kale's only contact with the outside world and when the two boys spy on Ashley in her swimming pool, they together find more sophisticated means of voyeurism. And, once Ashley visits Kale the three join in spying on a strange neighbor Mr. Turner (David Morse), finding him similar to a media-described serial killer. From there the plot thickens and quickens as the threesome made dangerous discoveries and end up in an investigation of scary proportions. The final fifteen minutes of the film are a bit over-the-top, but the rest of the movie is so well done that the ending can be forgiven. There are some fine cameo roles by Viola Davis as the detective in charge of Kale's house arrest, Jose Pablo Cantillo as officer who is stuck with responding to Kale's multiple infringements of his house arrest, among others. Shia LaBeouf is young in his craft but demonstrates a fine screen presence and a lot of polish: he carries the movie well. This is not a major film (though it did very well at the box office!), but is a surefire entertainment! Grady Harp
This is so far the best suspense thriller I have seen! I highly recommend this movie because it will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I went in to see this movie and thinkin it was going to be one of those teen movies, but I thought it was really good because of its thrills and good acting.
This movie was so awesome! The whole plot was very well thought out. The storyline is basically that Kale, a boy on house arrest for throwing a punch at a teacher, suspects his neighbor of being a mass murderer. Eventually, the climax leads up to Kale finding out what this guy is really up to......
I was excited to see this movie knowing it's a take on Rear Window, and I sure was let down. It's slow-moving and predictable. Don't waste your time. And the characters are all stereotypes.
The obvious comparison is it is a modern day "Rear Window", and to some extent it is. However, whenever any movie maker decides to do a twist on a classic, it always falls on its face. Imagine creating ET, 30 years later, would not have the same impact, neither does this. The most outstanding part of this moving is Shia; he shows he is more than a pretty Disney face. David Morse is dreadful as the crazed psycho neighbor, totally unbelievable...no villian quality at all.
It is visually a well done movie, somewhat suspensful and worth seeing...at least once.
this is the best thriller and horror movie i have ever seen. it has a little romance, suspense all mixed. ready to scare your but off? watch disturbia and buy it for keeps!!
